DreamWorks has some big Blu-ray news for you - Ben Stiller's hit comedy 'Tropic Thunder' is rolling into stores this November in a never-before-seen unrated director's cut version.

Co-starring Jack Black, Robert Downey Jr., and a barely-recognizable Tom Cruise, the $100 million-plus grossing Hollywood satire will hit Blu-ray on November 18 (day-and-date with single-disc and two-disc DVD editions).

Presented in an unrated Director's Cut, tech specs will see a BD-50 dual-layer presentation with 1080p video and Dolby TrueHD 5.1 Surround audio.

Extras include audio commentary with Ben Stiller, Jack Black, and Robert Downey Jr., multiple featurettes ("Blowing Shit Up," "The Hot LZ," "7 Cast of Tropic Thunder Features," "Make-up test with Tom Cruise"), a "Full Mags" feature with introduction by Stiller and editor Greg Hayden, and MTV Movie Awards clip, mock "Rain of Madness" trailer and a DreamWorks Public Service Announcement.

Suggested retail price for the Blu-ray has been set at $39.95
